Portable battery-powered devices such as earbuds, smartwatches, and gaming controllers are expected to deliver long-lasting performance for a better user experience. The challenge for designers lies in extending battery life when battery capacity is limited by the small form factor of these electronic products. The right power management architecture can make all the difference in […]READ MORE
The SCALE-iDriver™ from POWER INTEGRATIONS, which is available at CODICO, is an innovative IGBT gate driver, and brings many benefits to a motor drive inverter.
This document discusses the feasibility to reduce costs on system level by using this gate driver from POWER INTEGRATIONS™.
Power Integrations announced that two members of its SCALE-iDriver™ gate-driver IC family are now certified to AEC-Q100 Grade Level 1 for automotive use. The two parts, SID1132KQ and SID1182KQ, are suitable for driving 650 V, 750 V and 1200 V automotive IGBT and SiC-MOSFET modules, and are rated for peak currents of ±2.5 A and […]READ MORE
RECOM launches their all new R420 series. The non-isolated switching regulator requires less than 3.5mA input current (logic “0”), when operating and less than 100μA quiescent current. The high performer offers an adjustable output voltage from 1.8-5.0VDC at 10 mA and works from any voltage between 10-36VDC. The low profile SMT (5mm) component is designed to work in industrial environment from -40° up to 105°C and is the perfect companion to power Microprocessors, Data-Loggers and Smart Sensor Applications.READ MORE
